Anyway, let's skip the other chapters first and focus on the 158th chapter. :derp
So the Chancellor is a "gentle"person, as Aladdin acknowledge the old man. He is also the one that taught Yamu. His gentleness is on the level like the Old Lady and Alibaba, but wait... like Alibaba... does this he could be a King Candidate??:nerd
And he wants nothing more but to understand the different reasoning of the magicians entering the academy, and also to be understood by them.. On the understanding the other people part, remember how Kouen declared that he wants to understand the world and unite them?:gwah
Maybe it's just a coincidence that these two almost have the same reasoning for the world. But what about Sinbad's? hmmmmm?
I get a hunch that a great clash of idealism will happen someday in this manga :3c (Sinbad vs. the other countries vs. Aladdin)
